COVID-19 Response

Read the latest COVID-19 developments affecting PFC’s philanthropic community.

How can Canadian philanthropy respond to COVID-19? With input from the charitable and nonprofit sectors, we’ve outlined ​5 guiding principles to assist foundations in supporting their grantees ​through this time. We invite foundations across the country to adapt these to their context and join us in their implementation so that the organizations we fund can carry on their important work in our communities throughout and after the crisis.


PFC is rapidly re-orienting its resources to support its members’ response to the COVID-19 emergency. A key function for us is to share curated information about how you can assist and what actions your peers are taking. Subscribe to our weekly COVID-19 digest by clicking here.


PFC is amplifying the voices of sector leaders responding to COVID-19. In the spirit of offering alternative means of capacity building, we have launched #WebinarWednesday, a weekly resource that brings together sector leaders on topics that impact the work that we do and how Canadian philanthropy can do better.
